VALIDATE UK is a PASS accredited proof of age scheme. PASS (Proof of Age Standards Scheme) is endorsed by the Government and has the support of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), the Trading Standards Institute (TSI) and the Home Office. The VALIDATE UK card bears the distinctive PASS hologram which gives retailers of age-restricted products and enforcers the assurance that the card is genuine.
The PASS scheme works for both the retailer and young people. It ensures that the retailer has the confidence that the PASS accredited card is genuine and that the young person has access to goods and services to which their age gives them legal access.
